Second-seeded Elena Dementieva overcame early jitters to beat Alina Jidkova in the second round Tuesday at the Family Circle Cup. Dementieva won the matchup of Russians 6-4, 6-4. She won her first match on clay this season despite double-faulting 11 times and converting just 38 percent of her first serves.
